Draught-proofing

"Very pleased with the work carried out, the house is already benefiting from the draught proofing and the windows look great."

- Jason Gorin

Draught-proofing is the most economical and cost effective way to exclude unwanted draughts and noise from your windows. Poorly fitting sash windows can account for 90% of heat loss through the windows of your home, with only a small percentage of heat being lost through the actual glass. Using our discreet draught-proofing system with state of the art weather pile we are able to ensure your sash and casement windows are suitably protected from the elements all the while keeping your original windows and period character. All adjustments will be made to ensure your windows line up perfectly and that your windows move smoothly and problem free for years to come.
